I’m sorry, but I am still not ready to move past the Jim Henson memorial videos I happened upon the other day.
I checked his Wikipedia article. He died in 1990. 1990! It feels like it happened only a couple years ago.
He will always be with me. Always.
Near the end of the memorial, many of Henson’s fellow puppeteers came up to do a medley of his favorite songs. It’s really amazing, and not as heartbreaking to watch as the Big Bird song. Still, it’s really moving.
The last video in the post is Frank Oz, remembering his dear friend with a funny and moving story.
